Greetings,

I can return and loop through a list of Features that I want to export to a file gdb.

I can't add the  gdb + Feature as a variable to export.

It fails in the arcpy.FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion(Features, outLocation, outFeatures) section.

 

I would appreciate any pointers, and/or links to help resolve this.

 

import arcpy
import arcgis
from arcgis.gis import *
from arcgis.gis import GIS
from arcgis.features import FeatureLayer
from arcgis.features import FeatureLayerCollection
import pandas as pd

## SET Parameters
arcpy.env.orverwriteOutput = True
arcpy.env.workspace = r"D:\Users\user\Documents\ArcGIS\Projects\Databases\SDE.sde"

datasets = arcpy.ListDatasets(feature_type='feature')
datasets = [''] + datasets if datasets is not None else []

print("START")
## output file
outLocation = (r"W:\My Documents\user\ENV.gdb\ENV") 
inFeatures = ""
outFeatures = inFeatures

#### EXPORT DATA

for ds in datasets:
    for fc in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(feature_dataset=ds):
        new_name = fc.split('.')[-1]
        #print(new_name)
        Features = ([new_name])
        print(inFeatures)
        arcpy.FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion(Features, outLocation, outFeatures)

 

 

 

 

 

The arcpy error message

There's a lot going on in your code that is either redundant or slightly off. I recommend familiarizing yourself with the syntax of FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion()

Here's a simplified version. See if this runs and does what you want.

 

import arcpy

sde_workspace = r"D:\Users\user\Documents\ArcGIS\Projects\Databases\SDE.sde"
env_gdb = r"W:\My Documents\user\ENV.gdb\ENV"
print("START")
for ds in arcpy.ListDatasets(feature_type="Feature"):
    new_name = ds.split(".")[-1]
    print("Copying {}".format(new_name))
    arcpy.FeatureClassToFeatureClass_conversion(ds, outLocation, new_name)
